If there’s one high-end collectibles company that knows how to suck my credit limit dry fast and hard (wow, that sounded dirtier than I anticipated), it’s Hot Toys. And not to be outdone by all those other companies that are premiering their Guardians of the Galaxy 2 movie toys early, Hot Toys posted their very first teaser photo of upcoming 2017 Hot Toys Marvel figures this weekend: the core Hot Toys Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 sixth scale figures have now been revealed! Future dollars = Spent!Continue Reading →
On the same day as Hasbro blew the minds of millions of collectors worldwide with the reveals of new 2017 Marvel Legends Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man Homecoming figures, Hot Toys countered with… another Iron Man.
But hey, it may not be canonical, and it may just be a 100% repaint, but man does that gold chrome look good–the Sideshow Exclusive Hot Toys Retro Sneaky Iron Man is now up for order!Continue Reading →
2016 has been a theatrical breakout year for many Marvel characters, including Deadpool, Doctor Strange and Apocalypse. But when the smoke cleared, Captain America stood triumphant once again with the highest-grossing superhero flick in the land. As usual, the Hot Toys Captain America 12″ figure from the film was the best toy of Cap available this year, but not everyone has 200+ bucks to drop on one. But if you’re in that camp, rejoice, because we’re giving away a Hot Toys Civil War Captain America to one lucky reader absolutely free!Continue Reading →
Although Hot Toys has nearly drowned collectors in new Iron Man sixth scale figures over the past few years, one thing that they haven’t really done is straight-up reissue old figures–until now! In a real surprise twist today, Hot Toys announced that two of their most expensive and sought-after Marvel Movie Masterpiece Series figures are coming back for a return engagement: limited exclusive reissues of Hot Toys Iron Man Mark IV & Mark VI are now up for order!Continue Reading →
Ever waited so long for a toy after its initial reveal that you almost–almost–think that it’s never coming out at all? Such is the case with the latest Hot Toys Marvel Movie Masterpiece Series figure, which was first revealed at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 (yes, 2014). It’s been a surprisingly long and dubious road, but the Iron Man House Party Protocol is about to get a little bigger: the exclusive Hot Toys Blue Steel Iron Man is now up for order!Continue Reading →
It’s been a surprisingly quiet last few months for Marvel Hot Toys collectors, with a couple of Iron Man figures and Doctor Strange being the only new items solicited. But the respite is ending this week with what could be the start of a whole new Marvel lineup within the Hot Toys family: Netflix Marvel TV Series Figures! And there’s really no other way to lead off this new Movie Masterpiece Series lineup than with the character who kicked off Netflix’s Marvel-oriented success: the Hot Toys Daredevil sixth scale figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Get ready to have your minds blown, Marvel collectors: it’s been nearly two months since Hot Toys put a new Marvel sixth scale figure up for order. Craziness, right?! But the drought is at an end, and what an end it is–the Hot Toys Doctor Strange sixth scale figure is now up for order!
I have mixed feelings about the trailers I’ve seen for the upcoming Doctor Strange movie, but my only feeling about this 12″ figure is that it is awesome…Continue Reading →
While their awe-inspiring sixth scale Giant-Man diorama was plainly available to be photographed for the world to see yesterday during the setup for ACGHK 2016, there was one item Hot Toys was literally hiding until the start of the show!
He was obscured via being covered with a mystic sheet of cloth yesterday, but no longer: the Hot Toys Doctor Strange sixth scale figure has now been revealed!Continue Reading →
With San Diego Comic-Con 2016 having been last week and two new Iron Man sixth scale figures having been put up for order just yesterday, you might think that Hot Toys would have already played all of their cards for the time being. But ACGHK 2016 is occurring in Hong Kong this weekend, and Hot Toys has a giant-sized surprise on-hand for collectors: a humongous Hot Toys Giant-Man sixth scale figure is on display on the show–and man, “giant” is not hyperbole in this case…!Continue Reading →
Most companies might be content to just out one several hundred-dollar Iron Man sixth scale figure up for sale the same week as their first three Suicide Squad 1/6 figures and pair of Back to the Future II figures.
But Hot Toys is not “most” companies, and they don’t do things in half measures. And this isn’t just any old Iron Man, it’s one of the most-requested remaining upgrades: the Hot Toys Die-Cast Iron Man Mark VI figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Just when I thought that Hot Toys had already hustled movie Iron Man fanboys (like myself) for every possible dollar, they go and come up with something totally out of left field like this! Though we’ve seen this exact Hot Toys Iron Man Mark VII armor released as a sixth scale figure no less than four times before, the unique look of the fifth time is going to be another guaranteed purchase from a lot of collectors. The Sideshow Exclusive Hot Toys Iron Man Sub-Zero Mark VII figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
We’re now on the verge of the single most-anticipated night of the year for toy collectors: the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con Preview Night!
While most companies are holding their cards close to their vests until this evening, two big previews have already dropped: the Hot Toys Daredevil sixth scale figure and the Mezco ONE:12 Collective Spider-Man figure!Continue Reading →
San Diego Comic-Con 2016 is fast approaching, and while Hot Toys doesn’t bring any exclusives with them to the show, their Summer Toy Fairs Exclusives are always available for order prior to it.
And as has been the case for the last few years, this year’s limited exclusive will be an Iron Man 3 House Party Protocol armor–and this time, it’s my favorite remaining armor: the exclusive Hot Toys Disco Iron Man figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
I am not a quarter-scale figure collector. With the sheer number of toys and collectibles I buy each year, I discovered that if I buy a lot of 1/4 scale figures, I quickly begin to run out of space. But there are exceptions to every rule, and I’m about to have to make one. If there’s one Iron Man armor permutation I have a serious soft spot for, it’s the derpy Mark XLII armor from Iron Man 3. And now, it’s coming to quarter-scale in high-end figure form: the Hot Toys 1/4 Iron Man Mark 42 figure goes up for order today!Continue Reading →
Back in March, Hot Toys launched pre-orders for their New Avengers Scarlet Witch Movie Promo figure, and it was–in no uncertain terms–a blockbuster hit, selling out in under 12 hours (the fastest sell-out time for a female Hot Toys figure ever).
So it should come as a shock to no one that Hot Toys has decided to fully complete Team Cap with their latest sixth scale figure: the Hot Toys Civil War Scarlet Witch MMS figure is now up for order!Continue Reading →
